    Another of the great myths of the great depression and of financial regulation is the saintly Pecora Commission from the early 1930’s. Yes, it revealed a lot of the fraudulence that had ocurred in the financial industry in the late 20’s. But the only guy who went to jail as a result of the Pecora Commission was a guy who had robbed other rich elites. The crooks who robbed middle class or average people all skated. Maybe not a coincidence.
